The story behind the Alties: Whereas Hollywood caters to "Celebrity Culture," the Alties advocates "Participatory Culture" where there are no VIP areas, where the velvet rope is open to anyone who makes an effort and where drinks and food are affordable to all. We enjoy the style of the Oscars and pay homage to all the actors and filmmakers but with our own New York City attitude! The Alties ran from 2006-2008, we took a break in 2009 to host an Inaugural Ball, and are now re-launching this event for the new decade.
About Costume Cultural Society: Costume Cultural Society advocates costuming and participatory art forms and is the parent organization for the Kostume Kult arts collective which hosts some of the most colorful themed events in New York City today). CCS is a program of the non-profit association Fractured Atlas and has been the lead producer of this event since its inception working closely with the Action Arts League non-profit association.
